I didn’t even know the game was on. I thought it was tomorrow!
I flipped on the TV and there was 5 minutes left – game tied 1 to 1.
Here’s what happened:
After losing 2 years in a row by the most contrived non-sport solution
to any sporting event (or tournament no less) – a shootout –
Canada wins in regulation time over Sweden 3 to 1.
(I guess these guys have never heard of Sudden Death Overtime?
It’s only been around a hundred years.)
The tournament was in Buffalo.
And though this is some of the greatest hockey you
will ever see, not once was the rink full.
Most games less than half full.
You know … I can laugh …
or I can cry …
But I just kinda shake my head.
